Bedford Academy has once again recorded its best ever results, bucking the declining national trend. We are immensely proud of our #successfulstudents and the dedication of our #bestteamofstaff.
Our students made fantastic progress, and notable improvements were made in GCSE Media Studies (100% A*-C), GCSE English Literature (80% A*-C) and GCSE Food Technology (70%).
87% of students secured 5A*-C, well above the national average of 81%, enabling more students to secure progression routes on to Level 3 courses at our Sixth Form or other providers. We also saw year on year improvements to the percentage of students securing 5A*-C including maths and English, 5 GSCE passes and every student secured at least one qualification. Students who did particularly well include Amrit Thind who secured an amazing 5 A*s, 3A s and 2Bs at GCSE and Sadie Townsend who secured a fantastic 2A*s, 3A and 2Bs.
We were very proud that ALPS (a national Sixth Form performance measure) rates our Sixth Form Student Performance as Outstanding. 83% secured of our students secured 3A*-E and 98% secured 2A*-E, well above the national average. We have more students than ever progressing to top Universities. Some individual students who did particularly well included: David Ellis 3As at A Level, Kamilla Sala 5As at AS Level and Emma Anderson 4As at AS Level.
